weddings

We can’t help but grin every time we think of Angela + John. It doesn’t hurt that they have adorable cats [who made a cameo at their engagement session last fall], and that they’re some of the most laid-back and happy people we’ve ever known. Their wedding day was the epitome of relaxation; despite all the potential stressors of a day this complex, these two let everything just melt away while they laughed and enjoyed…

One of the things we love about client referrals is that sometimes we recognize a few people at a wedding. Even better? When a bride of ours from a couple of years ago refers her brother and future sister-in-law and we recognize half of the family at the entire event. This would lead to a very relaxed feeling to the day in general, but Mindy + Anthony’s wedding was even smoother than we’d expected. The perfect…

One of the best things about our chosen path in photography is getting to meet new people and make new friends. You may recall Megan + Glen and their beautiful daughter Gabby from family portrait sessions we’ve published here; we actually met them at the wedding of their besties Nicole + Scott two years ago, and we were beyond thrilled when they asked us to be their photographers for their own wedding day. In what ended up…

Christine + Diego’s wedding day was bright and beautiful; one of those days that reminds you of why everyone loves living in South Florida (especially in the winter). Their wedding day was filled with personal touches: from the Miami University campus chapel for their ceremony to the care they took to include their families’ diverse customs and heritages, each part of the day felt personal and inspired. The cocktail hour and reception were held beneath the soaring trees…

Nicole + Weston’s wedding day was predicted to be a rainy one, but miraculously the rain held off until every guest was inside the brand new reception hall at the Jupiter Country Club in Jupiter, Florida. (On a side note, we love shooting everywhere our clients take us… but it’s kinda fun having only a five minute drive home at the end of a long party!) Nicole is an event planner, so every detail was planned perfectly,…

Lisa + Dave love a good party. Their relaxed wedding day was the perfect lead up to their reception, which felt like a warm gathering of fun friends and awesome relatives. We started in their neighborhood of Abacoa in Jupiter, headed down to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens for the beautiful morning ceremony and portraits, and finished the day at the Abacoa Golf Club, just steps away from their home and the bar Dave owns, Das…

The summer weather in South Florida is wildly unpredictable. Generally one can expect it to be hot [obviously], but we sometimes have days of relentless sunshine followed by sudden torrential downpours. Or hurricanes. (We don’t get “drizzle”. If it’s raining, you’ll notice; it’s typically blowing sideways.) When we photograph weddings in the summer in Florida we tend to go with the philosophy of, “Hey. You’ll say vows! And we’ll take photos. We’ll play the rest…

Our 4th of July holiday weekend kicked off with Mai-Vi + Paul’s intimate wedding in Boca Raton on July 3rd. We were blown away by the relaxed atmosphere of the small group of relatives and close friends, and felt immediately welcome. Mai-Vi started her day by going on a “fun run” with her girls (“just ten miles”– wow!), and then settled into her air conditioned suite at the Boca Raton Resort + Club to get ready.…

A stormy day couldn’t keep Kaitlyn + Matt from beaming at each other last weekend! We joined these recent West Point grads for their wedding celebration along with friends and family from near and far. We met Kaitlyn and her mom in a Juno Beach parking lot while headed into another wedding last December, and have been so touched by the obvious care and emotion that they have put into this happy day (and getting to…

Andrea + Stephen found us because of networking, though in a very roundabout way. Em’s stepmother met a talented makeup artist in Burlington, Vermont a while back, and eventually we met Vivian Infantino in person while she was visiting family in Florida. We had yet to work together on a shoot, but kept meeting up for coffee (and eventually for some portraits of Vivian herself, in Hanover NH last summer). We were delighted when her nephew’s…

We love our clients, and we love their weddings; from the most intimate elopement to the craziest blowout party, each event signifies families and friends coming together to celebrate the union of a couple they love to pieces. Natalie + Tim’s elegant black tie ball was no exception. Every part of the day was filled with laughter and smiles, friends and family there to help and witness. We knew when we photographed this beautiful couple…

You may remember Denise + Horacio from their engagement session not long ago, featuring books and laughter and love. Not surprisingly, their wedding captured much of the same flavor, bringing together two vibrant and energetic families, a beautiful traditional church service, and an elegant lakeside reception at the Boca Raton Spanish River Public Library. We loved seeing the theme of books tied carefully throughout the day: from beautifully folded book art and stacks of books at…

Going into Alex + Jared’s Palm Beach destination wedding we knew that they were drawing people from all over the United States and beyond. Friends and family came from Boston, New Hampshire, California, and Alex’s grandparents flew from nearby (ha!) Romania. (They were a delight.) Some flew in for New Year’s Eve celebrations a few days before the big day, some flew in for the rehearsal, and some were delayed on their way back out…

Anna + Michael found us through their beautiful ceremony venue, the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach, Florida. Planning from far away Colorado, we didn’t have a chance to meet them until a couple of days before the big day, but their excited conversation and laid back, easy going personalities were infectious, and immediately won our hearts. Asking us to focus on capturing the day through candids, with a priority on their guests…

Jessica + David were married at the B’nai Torah in Boca Raton, surrounded by friends and family from around the world (including a special guest who attended via video chat). From the first moment we set foot inside Jessica’s parents’ lovely home through to the last moment when we hugged the newlyweds goodbye, we felt welcomed into their family and like we were a part of their wedding day. (It’s days like this that make…

Cheryl + Derek’s wedding was one of those days that we expected to go well. The weather was decent (hot, but that’s normal). The locations were gorgeous. The flowers, details, clothing… everything was set up for it to go as well as possible. We expected the day to go well; we were truly touched and amazed by how perfect it was. Having a very intimate wedding with only family and a few close friends makes…

Francisco + Antonio eloped to New York City for their wedding, and unfortunately we were unable to join them because of other commitments. (Sad face!) We made up for it by scheduling a portrait session with them when they returned home to Palm Beach, with a sunrise on the beach… in gorgeous matching outfits, of course. We love how gentle and caring they are with each other, and the teasing bickering that comes with a…

Photographing weddings is what we do, and we’re lucky enough to love our jobs. Every time we are asked to step inside our clients’ lives to document an incredibly important day we count ourselves lucky; we connect with all of our brides and grooms, and count them among our friends by the time the wedding day rolls around. It’s a rare and special treat when we’re already friends with the couple before the wedding, before…

Julissa + Rod wed before their closest family and friends at an intimate ceremony and reception in Palm Beach, at the Four Seasons Resort. Originally from Peru, Julissa’s friends and family traveled from destinations near and far, including a group of girls she has known since childhood who have all managed to stay in touch despite having scattered around the Americas in recent years. Seeing Rod’s face at their First Look was a high point…

Maressa + Dan were married at the fabulous Eden Roc hotel in Miami Beach, Florida last weekend. Leading up to the big day we were all worried about weather, but the hopes and prayers must have worked.. we had quintessentially perfect Miami Beach sunshine! Surrounded by family and friends from all over the country, Maressa + Dan’s wedding was the perfect combination of traditional Jewish customs and 1950’s glamorous flair. We loved seeing Maressa’s face…

We’re always so proud of Florida when the weather is perfect for couples who came from far away to get married here. Sunny weather, sparkling aqua water, a refreshing breeze… it’s like this so often I think we sometimes forget just how lovely it can be! The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is one of the few resorts along the Fort Lauderdale coast that’s actually right on the beach, and they take full advantage of their…

David + Lisa were married last weekend in a beautiful ceremony on the upstairs terrace at the Breakers’ Beach Club. Despite looming clouds and iffy weather, sunshine managed to break through for most of the afternoon and evening, giving a lovely golden glow to the day. David + Lisa were joined by their six children (can anyone say “Brady Bunch”??) as their wedding party, bringing an intimate and loving family feel to traditional wedding day…

As we mentioned in their engagement session, Teresa + Brent have been in love and together for a long time. The best part about a wedding like this is that rather than a celebration of two families coming together, it’s really one big family already! We loved how everyone knew each other, making the entire day one big party. Having the wedding at Teresa’s family’s home in Jupiter Farms made things even better; from the…

We love what we do. We honestly feel that we have the best job in the world; we meet great people and get to be creative during an incredibly beautiful and emotional time in their lives. Overall we tend to book clients who we’d be friends with, so we’re generally really happy campers! Then once in a while we get a couple like Nicole + Scott who make us remember just how lucky we are.…

Christina + Ryan (click to see their engagement session at the Jupiter lighthouse earlier this year) were married on the first of December, which unlike much of the country was actually a beautifully warm and sunny day. They both got ready at Frenchman’s Reserve with their best guys and gals, chose to see each other privately for their First Look, then headed to Saint Patrick Catholic Church down the road for the ceremony. Christina was…

Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally our weekend to skip town and celebrate both of our birthdays by hiding out somewhere and eating non-traditional food (like pizza and gallons of coffee). When Bobby + Bianca first asked us about shooting their wedding the Saturday of that weekend, we hesitated— but only for an instant. Their warm, enthusiastic personalities absolutely captivated us, as did their beautiful love story. We are so happy to say that their wedding was…

We knew from the moment we met Melanie + Alex that they were going to have a fun wedding… and we probably should have guessed after shooting their engagement session that they were going to look amazing as bride and groom! After a really rainy week everyone was relieved to see the forecast for Saturday; sunny and dry. It was hot (this is Florida, after all), but a refreshing breeze kept the temperature at bay.…

We joined Cindy + Alan for their weekend of wedding celebrations in Key West. The weather was warm, but a refreshingly brisk breeze held a hint of fall, even in this beach setting. Cindy got ready at the Hyatt before their waterfront ceremony, where close friends and family gathered and Alan’s daughter and son served as maid of honor and best man. After portraits around the Hyatt property, everyone waved goodbye to Cindy + Alan…

An event eleven years in the making (which is conveniently their hashtag: #11yearsinthemaking), Tina + Angelo officially tied the knot last Saturday in sparklingly beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. This was a true destination wedding; not a single guest or family member was a local (even we came from Florida!). Charleston is a very special place for Tina + Angelo, as he spent his formative years at the prestigious Citadel, and after years of spending time…

When we first met Sam + Angel, they told us about their love story; how they started as friends, but became so much more. When we photographed their engagement session in May (click here to see) we loved that they recreated their fateful first date, finishing up at Lulu, the restaurant where they realized they had something special. During that time we were also able to check out their wedding venue, just steps away from…
